  1. “…gross things that happen to my damaged brain.” I believe this might have captured the essence of your (lengthy, yet amusing) share. 🙂

      Better when commented 🙂
      Thanks! One Warhol for me!!!
      Next time, if nothing coming to your mind, please choose one of the pre-digested “likes” above. 🙂 Make feel a blogger!! 10Q! 10Q! 10Q!

      Leaving apart we are all somehow hypocrites [we cannot see ourselves or judge ourselves the way we see and judge others] you, in the worst scenario, will fall into the hypocrites-but-friends bunch. No really, thanks a lot for reading the post! One Warhol for me. 🙂 You are a gentleman! [I saw your avatar] 🙂 🙂

  5. Dios a muetro. Esta el superhombre,pero tranqui!!!
    Un abrazo Grande!

  6. I LIKE your idea for buttons. 😀
    I’ve often pondered that myself. Sometimes it doesn’t seem appropriate to “Like” something but you want to show support to the writer & let them know it was a good read.

  7. Yeah, I’ve seen empty pages that garner a lot of likes…but then, maybe some people just adore the look of a totally blank internet page! Maybe it relaxes them.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      And the next question would be what people hitting the like button in a blank page are looking for: Weird what some people will do to get noticed, a dubious self-promoting intention 🙂
      Thanks for commenting!

  8. Oh yes, the good old like-buttons. It’s like “I got a like-button, so I am”. Sometimes I see or read really shitty posts of other bloggers with hundreds of likes and I wonder if their followers really read what they write. I certainly do read your posts, but hardly ever comment as I have so little time.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      I know you are a busy person and still you find time to read my posts. So do I with your fantastic pictures, albeit rarely post a comment. Regarding shitty post I’m fully agreed with you. The funny thing is all those fake followers spend hours and hours spamming you, and all this working time represents hundreds or thousands dollars.

      If one day I would fell so vain to make my blog famous I will take a different approach: For $350, I can get a message (including my blog address and my pic) on the Reuters Sing in Times Square…
      Plus:
      o Post to PRNewswire.com, the industry’s most trafficked website.
      o Make your news findable by search and news engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo!).
      o Drive traffic to your website with live site preview.
      o Reach subscribers and bloggers with RSS.
      o Find your release with a search-friendly permalink URL.
      o Go viral with our social media toolbar.
      o Optimize your message with an image.
      o Distribute to the iReach syndication network of 1,000+ websites.
      o Leverage your message to get links from authoritative websites.
      o Measure visibility via PR Newswire’s ReleaseWatch™ reporting.
      o Receive a low-resolution webcam snapshot of your photo and headline displayed on the Reuters sign.
      o SocialPost(TM) – Reach 1,000s of followers of PR Newswire’s Twitter feeds. Add $59
      o Embed video in your release. Add $125

      So, for less of one day’s wages, you could get your Kilowarhol 🙂
      In any case I’d rather stay out of the limelight until I’ve done something I feel proud of.

      Thanks for your time!

  9. Java Girl dijo:

    Lol, well I read your entire blog post! I still prefer to write my own individual comments. 🙂

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Thank you. Of course that is the only rational way. The post was only a humorous approach 🙂 … although deep down I wanted to analyze this “like” button issue. It’s some time it was prowling my head 🙂 Thanks for your comment!

      • Java Girl dijo:

        Don’t worry. I sometimes think the exact same too about those “like” buttons. What I like more about WP is that bloggers really take a more lengthy approach and time to write their thoughts. On FB, people write small sentences and wait around to see who will “like” their “status”. Those two social sites are a world apart in that approach and in readers. Keep up the great job!

      • Dugutigui dijo:

        I quit all social networks some time ago. I am attaching a simple explanation of them in the photo below 🙂

        Thanks for the encouragement!

  10. dalo2013 dijo:

    That is a “like” for the Sagan reference. Well done 🙂

  11. Madhu dijo:

    Ha ha, have considered scrapping the button myself, especially when I get ‘likes’ micro-seconds after I publish! The customised buttons are a good idea, even if they will not necessarily eliminate all the fakes 🙂

  12. I’d love to leave a comment, but to be honest, your writing is so good I’m intimidated and scared and can’t come up with anything clever to leave as a comment to save my life. So I’ll just copy & paste instead to play it safe, but also to let you know I am simultaneously in awe and very jealous of you.

  13. du verdammte arschficker…I was going to do this–definitely BEFORE you–and so much funnier, too. I am having chest pains…That guy over my shoulder told me to say that…

    😉

    funny as hell, and very astute. I look forward to more body parts…

  14. Gede Prama dijo:

    Thank you… @ ^_^
    kindness blossoms in your heart

  15. Ha! Love this. I clicked like, but I did read your post first. I’ve visited many blogs that have followed mine and that have no content and lots of likes on the about page, which had nothing there except…”this is an example of a page”. I can’t remember ever clicking like on a blank page. As for leaving you an insult. I just can’t do it. Sorry. Have a lovely week. 🙂

  16. Sincerely. I LIKE your posts a lot.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Well that’s good and not so good at the same time. It’s great for the ego (a Warhol more), but it’s bad in the sense you’re putting me up the batten, and it appears to be very high already. 🙂 I also like your blog: your paintings and drawings are excellent.
      Thanks for your comment!

  17. anea dijo:

    The “do not like” I think it would be misused, would abuse .. “Ignore” when you open the page 🙂
    is hardness …Hardness is … what you propose you, are correct.

    “Detonate!” Although i’m actually watching Brazillian porn at the moment but Bolivia is on the same continent so i think that still counts.

    Hola y gracias, Senor Dugutigui: 🙂 you’ve made my day funnier, still smilin’… 🙂 About 3 weeks ago, I had my blog’s name and its address changed, as I was fed-up with fake and automatic/immediate “like(r)s”! 😀 Traffic hunters(LOL!) who have chosen the WP-option that crosses out any post automatically, without reading even the title of your article! Dahhh and hellooo! 😀 At my last post on Dali Museum posted before both changes: 85 likers, wow! 🙂 – and afterwards, most of the “likers” simply vanished in the vast web… 🙂 QED.

    My very best and a bonus: 🙂

  21. Olivia May dijo:

    I got not time to read all your wonderful writing, but the bloody “like” is extraordinary.

  22. Oh, I shan’t hit the “like” button nor shall I read over a thousand words of explanation! So I can unfollow you and you can do the same to me. I shall look to see if you ever made a comment and if it were to call attention to your blog for me to follow or I decided to maybe try a new blog.
    Toodles….no hard feelings.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Wow!! You see, it’s not easy for me to comment on posts titled [as for example your]: “Yesterday I planted Five Yellow Rose Bushes”. In fact they leave me speechless. But don’t worry; I have an appropriate comment for most your posts in the future: Meh! I’m sure now you’ll be happy. I also understand and agree you can not read 1,000 words (the bush must be giving you hard time). That’s OK! Only to add, next time you have a complaint, please use the page [up on the header] to that effect. And thanks for being so funny! Your family must be always happy with you! … And no hard feelings!

      • So sorry I did not see a place to register a complaint which really is not a complaint. I hate the “like” button as much as everybody else and stopped blogging because of same. I suggest another button…I was here but had nothing intelligent to add.

      • Dugutigui dijo:

        No problem. Actually the post was a critic to those fake followers who don’t read the posts.
        BTW the button you suggest is already in my post:
        General purpose (3): “I have nothing new to add, but I read every $#$%$# word of this post and comments, so I want you to know I was here.”
        Thanks again!

  23. sknicholls dijo:

    It is amazing to me the number of people who comment sometimes but fail to hit the like button. They are totally disrupting the stats….not that I pay that much attention to stats, but “Like” lets me know somebody was there!

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      I rather prefer people commenting, as you are doing now. Re stats there are three types of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics 🙂 and the “likes” are not telling you under any circumstances that somebody was there, unlike the comments, at least the elaborated ones …
      Thanks for commenting!

  24. puzzleblume dijo:

    Love it! These days, I was very near to hide the Like-button and rather be happy with a few real readers visitors of the original view than a bunch of cursory surfers.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Thank you.
      I think, if I could corner my vanity 🙂 , I will hide the like button form next post. In the meantime yesterday I erased all the blogs I follow, and I only spare people I think read my posts, plus those blogs that I really like whatever follow me or not —yours one of the later 🙂
      Thanks for commenting!

    Je suis française, ma mère aussi,
    and I really ENJOYED READING this post ! 😀
    I genuinely hit the LIKE button, be assured it’s not a fake.
    Thanks for the laugh 😉

      A pleasure! Too bad I can not speak Romanian, when many of the blogs that I really like are in that language! the original language of Cioran, my favorite philosopher …
      Google translate is not a very reliable tool, but one way or another it captures the sense of what the writer means. In this case technology goes behind humans … 🙂

  27. Hola Dugutigui buenos días.
    Agradecida por seguir mi blog.
    Que disfrutes de un hermoso fin de semana.

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Tu blog es una excelente combinación de prosa, poesia y cuidada imagen. ¿Qué más se puede pedir? Gracias a ti por tu buen trabajo.
      ¡Elen sila lumenn’ omentielvo! (Que una estrella brille a la hora de nuestro encuentro)

  29. By the way, I like the likes. Since no one has to also feel called, extra comment yet. ^ ^

    or so like Google-Übersetzer (H)

  30. Malin H dijo:

    This blog post made my day… I have been thinking a lot of this things lately and I thought I was the only one thinking of this things… Now I know I’m not. Thank you for this!

    Ps I didn’t hit the like button ;D

  31. I just have to say this: You made my day! 🙂
    In absolutely every word I absolutely agree with you. And I even wonder how it would have been if we even had a “dislike” button…

  32. What sort of button would you add for those who love you? 😀

  33. Coffee came out of my nose and l still pissed my pants! l managed to press Like before l hit the WC. Nobody will follow me there. haha Or like me (wheeping now)
    Would you plz proofread this well balanced Comment for typo’s?#?! Thank You. l do hate my typo’s to show when l completely Reblog or “republish” your entire blog. l like following your blog although am not really the warm puppy people need or even want. My next stop on the Net is Google searching for: What the heck is Bolivian porn.?! l will then carefully translate to Dutch. Hope it has nothing to do with Facebook pokes from guys with funny hats. Because that is only legal in the Netherlands. ‘-D

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Well, thank you!
      The only word that could be misspelled is “wheeping”, but you should clarify first whether you mean weeping or wheeling, or wheezing, or whelping, or cheeping… because the meaning of the whole paragraph would change 🙂 🙂
      Re Bolivian porn … due US trend to outsource 🙂 , it’s a thriving industry flooding [not only virtually] the market [as far as I know 🙂 ] in which they can film an orgy for less than a hundred bucks, with actors making only two dollars an hour, whereas the same scene may cost $25,000 here, and [from the point of view of some native actors] considered Unamerican 🙂 , though at least with Obama’s new health care plan, locals will be able to get their AIDS meds for free 🙂
      And no. I’m not speaking about the communication option on Facebook especially useful in the process of overanalyzing a potential romantic interest’s feelings about you based solely on impersonal online interactions. Hahahaha!
      BTW I’m not Facebook’s user 🙂

    You made me do it lmao!

  35. Coincido en tu escrito.
    Yo siempre me pregunte lo siguiente : Si Jesús lloro por la muerte de Lázaro y luego lo resucita.Eran mas que amigos,diría que pertenecía a lo mas intimo del clan familiar.Pero en que escritura ,salvo en su resurrección , aparece Lázaro?.Y si Jesús amaba a Lázaro y este a Jesús .
    Como se olvido de ir a su crucificción.

  36. LOL! Dugutigui, you are the ONLY person on the planet who “likes’ me!

    Where do I send the check?

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      You have to consider the ongoing transformation, courtesy of WordPress, Facebook, etc., of the verb ‘to like’ from a state of mind to an action that you perform with your computer mouse: from a feeling to an assertion of consumer choice.

      In any case “I like” the unusual passion you pour into most of your posts!

      Regarding the check please find my address below:
      1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington 🙂 🙂

  37. JAJAJAJAJA!
    ………I “LIKE”.. therefore…I AM “LIKED”…

  38. ~meredith dijo:

    You talk too much, you’re far too needy slash high maintenance, and yet I concede these rights of yours and slog my way through all of this talk to assure you my ‘like’ is completely considered after thorough contemplation… Yes, I like the posts I ‘like.’ I end up liking the comments just as much. Really, though, a lot of reading needs doing and I can’t stay on just your blog with all my reading time. It’s not democratic and ….. LIKE!

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      You’re right. From next post I’d disable the link to the “Like” post. That doesn’t mean that I get up democratic this morning. In fact, I’ve been tempted to address you to the complaints section (top of page). All meant in good fun 🙂

  39. ~meredith dijo:

    (all meant in good fun)

  40. geelw dijo:

    A ha and ha. I’m on a slow connection here, so the “Like” button isn’t loading. Well, that’s probably for the better. We don’t want you to get too popular, correct? Thanks for the many laughs in this post, sir.

    We are Pavlov’s dogs-trained to respond to stimuli…beebee

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Somehow we are 🙂
      In the 1932 novel Brave New World, written by Aldous Huxley, conditioning plays a key role in the maintenance of social peace, especially in maintaining the caste system upon which society is based. Children are conditioned, both in their sleep and in their daily activities. They’re conditioned to be happy in their government-assigned social role as “Alphas”, “Betas”, etc., as well as, in adopting other “socially acceptable” types of behaviour, including consuming manufactured goods and transport, practicing free sex, etc. For example, earlier in the book, the director of the Central London Hatchery and Conditioning Centre shows his young visitors how a group of toddlers of the Delta caste is conditioned to avoid books and flowers, by using shrill noises to terrorise them and applying “mild electric shocks”. Also, in a later explanation by Resident World Controller of Western Europe Mustapha Mond of how their society really works, he explains how early conditioning is an essential part of how social harmony among the different castes is maintained. Lower-caste members like Epsilons are as happy as upper-caste Alpha-Pluses, in large part due to their conditioning.
      In fact, one way or another all of us are getting the Ludovico technique 🙂 🙂
      Thanks for your comment!

  42. wow. awesome. you asked for comments and you got them!
    I might have to re-bog this so somebody will like and comment on my blog too.
    I would enjoy it more of there was a bit less blood on the revised like button. if I wanted to see blood I could have been a nurse. ha ha

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      Blood may be thicker than water, but it’s certainly not as thick as ketchup. Nor does it go as well with French fries. Hahahaha! (I think I gazed long enough into an abyss, and the abyss starts gazing back into me).
      Thanks for the comment!

  44. Joseph Nebus dijo:

    I want to like things more, but I have this natural reserve leaning towards stoicism. If I just admit that I found this article to be a thing which exists and has definite properties would that do to express my enjoyment correctly?

    • Dugutigui dijo:

      A Stoic is someone who transforms fear into prudence, pain into transformation, mistakes into initiation, and desire into undertaking, but as any philosophical thinking, despite its successes, in the end, always falls short of its real goal. It involves both the wonder of aspiring toward the Truth and the distress of falling short of that Truth. In this way, philosophy can be characterized as wondrous distress. Said that, the point here is there ain’t no point 🙂
      As a nihilist that overemphasis the dark side of human experience, it might be equally true that this overemphasis represents a needed counterbalance to shallow optimism and arrogant confidence in human power. We are not gods … but in this world, nothing is as cruel as the desolation of not wanting anything. So just be yourself!
      Thanks for your philosophical comment!
